The Nepalese government has decided to call off all the expeditions to Mt. Everest for this season.

An official on Monday said that all the expeditions to summit have been called off because the climbing routes above the base camp have been damaged by the avalanches.

Nepal’s Sagarmatha Pollution Control Committee (SPCC) had assigned a special team of sherpas, also known as icefall doctors, to assess the feasibility of the trek. The SPCC announced the closure of risky route for this season on the advice of icefall doctors. “The glaciers in the West Shoulder have been found unstable and the route up to the higher camps has also been badly crumbled away,” said Ang Dorjee Sherpa, Chairman, SPCC.

“Mt. Everest is the dream for many people. Every year thousands of people take part in this memorable mission. We have to look forward till the roads are being constructed,” said, Romen Bonnerjee, a veteran mountaineer.
